Alright, most probably the "local weather" I read somewhere (dev blog?)

That would be cool....

Seeing snow on tears of the desert....

If we are getting night battles... well I'm more than a little excited.

This looks like it could also, finally, be decent looking storms.

The video looks like it is stormy and evening, which means 2km spotting distance for everyone!

Considering night combat was their specialty, I wonder if IJN cruisers will get some kind of advantage in night battle conditions to help undo some of the power creep that's been squishing them.

 

Kind of like how USN cruisers have a silly advantage in Squall via Radar.

IIRC radar does not let you see them past the 8KM limit that we have in squalls...

Would be so cool if the searchlights on each ship would spot the ship it targets and illuminates it for all to see.  Radar id almost a must.

I think it lets you see any ship, regardless of weather, island obstruction, or DD ship concealment, for example, within the radar's range.

Can confirm. I used to think it didn't either until one day I got lit by radar and a DM beyond 8km visual range started pounding on my Hindenburg with 100% accuracy. Then a bit later I tried it out myself with one of the Russian cruisers and with a sly grin I pounded some helpless cruiser that couldn't see me but I could see them out in the open.

True night battles would be searchlights and star shells. Low flash powder & a lot of Mark I Eyeball. Interesting if they could implement that. Make for some devilish choices. To illuminate or not? Star shells or damage dealing? Torp detection mods? Would make Hydro's value go through the roof.
